Our Original Gasthaus 'Zum weissen Schwan'

Restaurant Weimar - Gasthaus zum Weissen Schwan

Where hospitality is celebrated for more than 450 years

Welcome to one of the oldest taverns of Europe and one of Goethe's favorites. This is a place where the traditional art of hospitality prevails. Experience for yourself what original Thuringian hospitality entails.

'The Swan'
The tavern Gasthaus 'Zum weissen Schwan' is closely intertwined with the history of Weimar itself, the one of Hotel Elephant and, last but not least, the one of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. 'The Swan', how locals lovingly nicknamed it, is only a few minutes' walk from Hotel Elephant, Weimar. As Goethe once mentioned in a letter of 1827: "The swan welcomes everyone warmly and with open wings". Nothing has changed since then, and 'The Swan' still is the perfect place to savour the best of original Thuringian specialties.
